3:11 pm
this environment of mutual accusations and mutual demands it did not sound like an initiative to have a cease fire tomorrow to have a cease fire right away and secretary kerry also said president putin can make a huge difference by exerting pressure on the rebels also there are reports that the u.s. may announce additional sanctions on russia today but secretary kerry did not give such a timeframe the u.s. has accused of violating laws dating back to the 1980's washington c russia has breached the nuclear arms treaty signed with the soviet union in one thousand nine hundred seven by testing and growing launch cruise missile a former german defense official says it's just another way of making my school look like a guilty party. and ongoing throughout all of it because asians against russia they tried to blame it on every morning of leaving evil united.

3:14 pm

3:15 pm
pole. lengthening campaign inevitably means rising numbers of dead which are already struggling more than eleven hundred people most of them civilians and children have been killed in that campaign so far while israel has lost more than fifty soldiers and three civilians as well and one of the latest attacks on the refugee camp was one that caused a spike in the death toll our correspondent sent us an eyewitness video from this scene this is it. kill nine children decapitation one man and severely wounding another but the i.d.f. denied it was involved claiming it was at. a mosque or a fear reports from the heart of the country. so extraordinary scenes where the fled as drops by the israeli military vos neighborhoods of gaza smoke

3:19 pm
made the wrong choice in buckingham us. to even have a running joke saying do they understand the word cease fire or maybe it was lost in translation cease fire means cease fire and they kept firing rockets so we are going to cease fire the un said it should be done with ration of egypt we are very open to that so we don't have an argument with the international community and you will prime minister says that israel will act aggressively and responsibly until this mission is completed do you think that killing civilians is responsible the people in gaza could have had amazing freedom we counted the number of cash that was put into the terror ten dollars it's one point twenty five billion dollars with that amount of money they could have had a hospital they could have three malls they could have had twenty schools they could have had so much economy going on but they decided to put it into tunnels where terror supposed to bring terrorists into israel they are doing it using these children this human shields but when you consider that girls are so densely

3:21 pm
five or ten or twenty five people to death is something in the world. i don't think that even times of war we can do with every whatever we want without boundaries when somebody speaks out against the actions of the government you have there always be some people who consider you in some way to be betraying your native country what is the public reaction to what you've had to say and do you worry about any of the repercussions the reaction as you probably know in here. are not very gentle but i'm not sure it's only the public we see when our officials you know government needs to know government calls to raise. flatten whole neighborhoods in gaza. this is sort of violence that. have to you know to be drawn down to the people so the sentiment these days are very hard it's hard to make any criticism these days in the israel but they do
